Hart Impressed By Gophers

The Golden Gophers hosted several prospects for their spring game and one was Prior Lake (MN) junior linebacker Alex Hart

Prior Lake (MN.) outside linebacker Alex Hart made his way to Minnesota to check out the Golden Gophers compete in their spring game. He got the chance to watch his brother play thought both him and the team looked good.

"The visit was good," Hart told GopherDigest. "I got down there a little late due to the ACT, but it was great to watch the guys go at it and see my brother out on the field. He looked like he was making his blocks and got open on some of his pass routes but did not get the ball thrown his way. I thought the team looked good overall for a scrimmage."

The 6-2, 215-pound linebacker didn't get to talk to the coaches from his visit, but overall had a great time and hopes to joins his brother at the next level.

"I just said hi to Coach Sherels after the scrimmage," said Hart. "I enjoyed the game and I really like Minnesota, the guys on the team and the coaches. We'll just have to see how things play out over the next 6 months. It would great to have the opportunity to be a Gopher and to get to play with my brother again."

Hart updates his upcoming visit plans and his recruitment as well.

"I am headed to Michigan State this Thursday and then possibly Northern Illinois in May, said Hart. "Otherwise I will be hitting some schools in June at camps. I just went up to North Dakota State on Friday and picked up an offer there."
